This is my first make as a visiting artist at Gingersnap Creations.
The Chestnut Theme Challenge this month is famous painters. A few months back I bought a rubberstamp plate from Creative Expressions called Vintage Artist. The Michelangelo sentiment from this plate is my inspiration for the canvas I've made for the challenge.
First I had white Gesso on my canvas, then added molding paste to create texture, this had to dry before I added one vintage crocheted dolie from my findings the other day. I covered most of this with Claudine Hellmuth multi-medium - matte. I left it to dry overnight. The next day I added different blue Distress Ink with minimister. When this was dry I added all my elements with the same multi medium. I've used vintage bookpage, images from Crafty Individuals and Alphastamps, Vintage ephemera from Hot off the press. I've also used some gold leaf and white Basic Grey transfers. And of course my stamped sentiment from Michelangelo.
This is my first Canvas and it was great fun.
For me paper challenges is all about having fun and try out new things, this way I learn and develop my skills, hopefully getting better.
For me Gingersnap Challenges is a great place to play, please join the fun.
